  Purpose

Primary Objective:

- To demonstrate that lixisenatide can reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality [composite endpoint of cardiovascular (CV) death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina] compared to placebo in type 2 diabetic patients who recently experienced an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) event.

Secondary Objectives:

To demonstrate that when compared to placebo, lixisenatide can reduce:

  • composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI, non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina, or hospitalization for heart failure
  • composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI, non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina, hospitalization for heart failure, or coronary revascularization procedure
  • urinary albumin excretion (based on the urinary albumin/creatinine ratio).

To assess the safety and tolerability of lixisenatide.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to the first occurrence of the primary cardiovascular (CV) event: CV death, non-fatal MI, non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina, positively adjudicated by the Cardiovascular Events Adjudication Committee (CAC) [ Time Frame: week 0 to week 203 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to the first occurrence of cardiovascular (CV) death, non-fatal MI, non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina, hospitalization for heart failure positively adjudicated by the CAC [ Time Frame: week 0 to week 203 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to the first occurrence of cardiovascular (CV) death, non-fatal MI, non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina, hospitalization for heart failure, coronary revascularization procedure positively adjudicated by the CAC [ Time Frame: week 0 to week 203 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percent change in the urinary albumin/creatinine ratio [ Time Frame: From baseline to 108 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 6000
Study Start Date: June 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lixisenatide
Titration period (week 0 to 2): 10 µg lixisenatide (0.10 mL injection) once a day in the morning within 1 hour prior to breakfast Maintenance period (week 2 to 176): 20 µg lixisenatide (0.20 mL injection) once a day in the morning within 1 hour prior to breakfast
Drug: lixisenatide (AVE0010)

Pharmaceutical form:sterile aqueous solution

Route of administration: subcutaneous

Placebo Comparator: placebo
Run-in period (week -1 to 0): 10 µg volume-matched placebo ( 0.10 mL injection) once a day in the morning within 1 hour prior to breakfast Titration period (week 0 to 2): 10 µg volume-matched placebo (0.10 mL injection) once a day in the morning within 1 hour prior to breakfast Maintenance period (week 2 to 176): 20 µg volume-matched placebo (0.20 mL injection) once a day in the morning within 1 hour prior to breakfast
Drug: placebo

Pharmaceutical form:sterile aqueous solution

Route of administration: subcutaneous


Detailed Description:

The estimated maximum study duration for the first randomized patient will be approximately 204 weeks (± 14 days), with a median follow-up over all patients of approximately 91 weeks, broken down as follows:

  • placebo-run-in period: 7 days (+ 3 days)
  • double-blind study treatment period: 203 weeks (± 14 days) (with about a 37 months of recruitment period)
  • post-treatment follow-up period: 3 days (± 1 day)

All patients will be followed from randomization until the end of study, which should occur when the last randomized patient has been followed for approximately 10 months. The actual end date of the study will be "event driven"and the study will end when there are approximately 844 positively-adjudicated primary cardiovascular outcome events.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   30 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion criteria:

  • Men and women who experienced a spontaneous acute coronary syndrome (ACS) event [i.e., ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)] or non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) or unstable angina (USA)] with a documented elevation above the normal reference range of a cardiac biomarker (Troponin or CK-MB) and the clinical presentation consistent with an acute coronary syndrome which leads to admission to an acute care facility, within 180 days following the ACS event and prior to screening.
  • Patients with a history of type 2 diabetes (for patients newly diagnosed, diagnosis will be based on the World Health Organization (WHO) criteria: i.e., either a fasting venous plasma glucose concentration ≥ 7.0 mmol/L [126 mg/dL] or 2-hour post glucose load venous plasma glucose ≥ 11.1 mmol/L [200 mg/dL], confirmed on 2 occasions) prior to the screening visit.

Exclusion criteria:

  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus or history of ketoacidosis within 6 months prior to screening.
  • HbA1c <5.5 % or >11% measured at screening visit.
  • Required to use incretin-based agents (eg, GLP-1 agonists or DPP-4 inhibitors) other than the study drug during the doubleblind treatment period.
  • Patients who have undergone CABG surgery following the qualifying ACS event.
  • Patients who have undergone PCI within 15 days prior to screening.
  • Patients with planned revascularization procedure (PCI or CABG) or coronary angiogram within 90 days after screening visit.
  • History of unexplained pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, pancreatectomy, stomach/gastric surgery, inflammatory bowel disease, personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), or genetic conditions that predisposes to MTC (eg, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes).
  • Any clinically significant abnormality identified at the time of screening that in the judgment of the Investigator or any sub-Investigator would preclude safe completion of the study or constrain endpoints assessment such as major systemic diseases.
